Gatamaiyo Race Long profile
Gatamaiyo Short profile
This is a very beautiful area to ride your bike. Absolutely NO technical skills required as its very new tarmac with hardly any traffic.And its an out and back route so if you get tired you just turn around and head back.
We pass through enough towns so you can buy water, bananas, juice, tea, muratina or whatever fuel you use.
Farmers choice have donated their much sought after riding jerseys for podium places 1 & 2 male and female long and short races!!! This is in addition to the cash prizes for the event!!!
Route is along the C66 road that runs from Thika rd (mangu area) to Uplands (Flyover) traversing the Gatamaiyo Forest Reserve.
Just like the NHITT this is a DIY race so absolutely 100% self supported. No backup car, no water stops, no ambulance. However water can be bought along the way and plenty of public transport (matatus, boda bodas etc) available to carry you back to start point.
NOTE: Anyone willing to volunteer to equip and/or man/woman the water points e.g. at the turn around point is highly encouraged to email me back so we can discuss. Also likewise for anyone keen to volunteer to take photographs for the event.
